US Looking for World Cup Victory


WomenSUN CITY, South Africa -- The LPGA opens the 2008 season with the Women's World Cup of Golf, which is in its fourth year.
Japan won the first event in 2005, followed by the Swedes in '06 and the Paraguayans last year. Celeste Troche and Julieta Granada combined to post 9-under par as they cruised to a seven-shot win over the United States duo of Juli Inkster and Pat Hurst.
The three-day event features a different format each day. The two-player teams play foursomes, four-ball and stroke play over the three days.
For a country to qualify, it has to be one of the top nine from each of the LPGA and Ladies European Tour's final money list and order of merit.
All three days will have tape-delayed coverage on the GOLF CHANNEL.
After a three-week break, the LPGA opens its regular schedule with the SBS Open at Turtle Bay, where Paula Creamer won last year.
